Word around Washington: On the Redskins’ right tackle & more

April 19, 2013

Maybe we haven’t talked enough about the Redskins’ options at right tackle. Tyler Polumbus didn’t grade out so well last season. (Associated Press)

We appreciate you clicking on all the Post’s Redskins and NFL-related coverage, be it Maske and Jones, the antics captured over at the Bog, our columnists or what have you. Certainly though, we don’t have a monopoly on all the interesting things being written about the team. So from time to time, we’ll round up and link to compelling things we’ve read elsewhere, like other blog do. Here’s a pretty healthy collection to help you pass Friday afternoon:

Pro Football Focus’s NFC East draft needs

More interesting than your average draft-needs blog post, because it suggests the Redskins’ biggest issue might not be in the secondary, but at right tackle, where Tyler Polumbus graded as the NFL’s fourth-worst, and newly added Jeremy Trueblood is not much better. Tony Pashos they like, but he’s 33. I don’t like copying and pasting big blocks of other people’s text, so click over there to see who they have Washington picking.
